Some amusing TV show-related errors...

Mark this day down on your calendars--I'm talking about TV show-related errors that have nothing to do with Lost! (The Lost post is tomorrow, of course.)

This first one is The Office-related and comes to us from MAGGIE. There's an itsy-bitsy apostrophe error here, but that's definitely not the funniest part of this picture. Can anyone tell me what the hell "compotent" is? I'm guessing they mean "competent," but every time I look at "compotent" it reminds me of how the word "impotent" looks, which makes me giggle because I have a totally sophomoric sense of humor.


And here's an inexcusable error relating to Desperate Housewives. Between the start and the end of this brief paragraph, this People writer evidently forgot the last name of the actor he was talking about. The actor's name is Gale Harold. Who's this "Howard" dude?



Speaking of TV, it's only mere hours until I get my Sawyer fix. *swoon* Yes, I have a one-track mind; I can't stay focused on other TV shows for very long!

Thanks, MAGGIE, for finding this great Office error for us!

I thought "impotent" before you said anything about it, so I guess we have the same sense of humor. =)

Great minds think alike...and have the same slightly warped sense of humor! :)

LOL! :) Glad you're joining this little party of warped minds, LadyStyx!

Compotent sounds like something former President George W Bush would use in a speech to describe his handling of the Financial Failout *cough* Bailout. Thank God he is no longer in charge of anything important....

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! I second that sentiment! :)

"Compotent" sounds like really strong fruit relish (potent compote, that is) to me. It still doesn't make sense in relation to The Office, though. And I might watch a little too much Food Network. :)

Ooh, I love the "potent compote" definition! That's fantastic. :)
